This outstanding tea is produced in northern Taiwan in a small village near Pingling, close to Wen Shan. The tea leaves are bitten by a cicada, a non-harmful insect, which results in a high degree of sweetness in the oxidation process. The harvest time is from the beginning to the middle of July due to the cicadas. No insecticides are used on these uniformly styled jet black, tightly woven leaves. The brew yields a copper colored cup with a smooth, full-bodied hint of honey taste which is complemented by a slightly malty caramel-like body. Amazing!

Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.

Not quite what I hoped

I was a bit disappointed in the flavor profile. Even the scent was very earthy almost musky. Its not bad, just not quite what I expected.

Delicious Black Tea!

I wasn't sure what to think if this formosa honey black tea, so bought only a few ounces to try. It's amazing, and really does have a slightly sweet honey taste! This is a great choice if you're looking for a high quality black tea that isn't flavored, but want something a little more interesting. I will definitely be buying again!
